Oh well, it does. Actually this  is  what  I'm  doing  all  the  time
internally. I just need to decide (a) if I want to make such branches
publickly available in general (versus in special cases as we already
do  with  the  USB  and  NAND  testing branches), (b) what's the most
efficient way for me is to deal with such a  configuration,  and  (c)
what could be done to get more feedback about test results from board

Umm... I disagree. Having the patches available in a git  repo  where
you  can  pull  and/or  cherry-pick  from  is much more effcient than
having to deal with email messages, where patches come in a  plethora
of different formats, often in many parts and sub-parts, or combinbed
as patches plus tarballs, or whatever.

IN theory, our patch tracking system should jump in  here  and  allow
for  easy  scanning of open and applied patches, but again this takes
more time than planned.

I apologize for this.

Best regards,
